Match Previews

PREVIEW: Plymouth Vs Barnsley

21 April 2019

The Reds quickly return to action with an Easter Monday trip to Plymouth and we have it covered here in our big match preview.

Having successfully beaten off the spirited challenge that was Shrewsbury Town on Good Friday, Barnsley will be hoping to make it a Happy Easter weekend when they travel to Devon to take on relegation-threatened Plymouth Argyle on Easter Monday.

Head Coach, Daniel Stendel saw his side edge out the Shrews last time out with goals in either half from Alex Mowatt and Jacob Brown, and a timely return to first team action for striker Kieffer Moore who's missed the last eight weeks after a head injury suffered at Gillingham in early February.

Goalscorers celebrate

That result meant back-to-back victories for the Reds, something desperately needed as the race for promotion shows no sign of getting easier, as nearest challengers Luton, Portsmouth and Sunderland all won their respective fixtures too.

Going into Monday's contest still sat in second position, two points clear but having played a game more than the two sides chasing them, Stendel's men will be backed by nearly 900 Reds supporters on the south coast of England.

Our hosts aren't in great form, no wins in their last six fixtures and three consecutive defeats after going down 3-1 at Gillingham on Friday afternoon.

They have though held both Luton and Portsmouth to draws at Home Park in 2019, proving they're a tough nut to crack on home soil. 

Sat 19th in the Sky Bet League One table and just two points above the dreaded bottom four, Argyle have their own reasons for this being a huge fixture in their season.

Derek Adams

Pilgrims manager, Derek Adams was clear in his message when speaking to local press after defeat in Kent on Good Friday.

He told them:  “Our players have to take huge responsibility in the game, because it’s their livelihoods they’re looking after, and also the livelihoods of other members of staff as well.”

Dale Tonge

Reds' Assistant Coach Dale Tonge felt the weekend would be a real test of the squad's character when he spoke to the press. 

Tonge said: “It will be a test of character with another game so soon, against a tough team who are very good on their day. But if we do our job, another three points could make a big difference.”

The home side are set to be without Oscar Threlkeld, Joe Riley and Conor and Joel Grant, but in Freddie Ladapo they do possess one of the division's most potent strikers. Ably assisted by the enigmatic talents that are Graham Carey and Ruben Lameiras, the Pilgrims will be looking to make it a miserable Monday for Stendel's young side.

Ruben Lameiras

In terms of the Reds, it's unlikely that Liam Lindsay will be involved having missed the last two games with a leg injury, but that aside, it's a pretty strong squad at Daniel's disposal as we enter the final three fixtures of a long and arduous season. 

Speaking of arduous journeys, it's well over a 600-mile round trip for both the Reds' players and staff, and of course the travelling Red army. And it's our first visit to Home Park since March 2010, which was a goalless draw.

2009

Incredibly, Barnsley have had seven different managers since that fixture, and it was under Simon Davey's stewardship that we last won in Plymouth - a 2009 victory, 2-1 on the final day of the season which confirmed the Reds' safety in the second tier.

Match Reports

REPORT: Plymouth 0-3 Barnsley

22 April 2019

A superb Easter weekend was rounded off with a comfortable victory on the south coast as Woodrow, Brown and Mowatt blast the Reds to a third straight win.

Three goals inside 15 first half minutes blew away our Devon hosts here on Easter Monday as Barnsley moved back into the second automatic promotion spot!

Reds Head Coach, Daniel Stendel had made just the one change to his starting XI for this game, with Liam Lindsay returning from injury replacing Adam Jackson at centre half. 

In glorious Devon sunshine, the match began in a very scrappy fashion, but Stendel's men were at least attempting to get the ball down and play, unlike their hosts in the opening stages. 

With eight minutes played a signal of intent from Barnsley as Cauley Woodrow chested a loose ball down 30 yards from goal and rifled an effort that was set for the bottom left-hand corner of 'keeper Kyle Letheren's goal, but the former Reds stopper parried the shot away to safety. 

But on 15 minutes the breakthrough arrived, and it was that man Woodrow once more on the scoresheet, peeling off his marker on the left of the Plymouth penalty area, taking down a delightful diagonal ball sent over by Jordan Williams, just inside the box and immediately firing low and true into the bottom corner with his left foot to give Barnsley a precious lead. 

Pilgrims midfielder Yann Songo'o tried to respond quickly for the home side but his powerful drive from the edge of the Reds' box skidded a foot wide of Adam Davies' goal.

But with 22 minutes on the clock the Reds doubled their advantage, with Jacob Brown doing exactly what Woodrow had previously done, taking down a diagonal ball from a full-back, this time from Dani Pinillos on the left and then finishing in style from close-range with his left foot for 2-0.

Just six minutes later and it was three for Barnsley. After a handball just outside their own box, Plymouth could only stand and admire as Alex Mowatt curled home a delightful free-kick into the top corner. 

There were chances to add even more goals before the break but Pinillos' blockbuster was turned behind by Letheren and then a scramble at the back prevented Cam McGeehan from heading in at the far post. 

HALF TIME: Plymouth 0-3 Barnsley

After the restart, the Reds came out with a more disciplined approach, retaining possession and limiting Argyle to very little of the ball themselves, but there were two chances for Mama Thiam to add to the Barnsley tally.

The first effort was low and hard and comfortably held by the ever-impressive Letheren, the second effort was a wonderful curled shot that looked destined for the top corner as Thiam struck 20 yards out, but the Greens' 'keeper clawed it out of the top corner.

Davies, as captain, led by example when a rare Plymouth break saw Songo'o in on goal on the angle, right hand side but the skipper smothered the effort away superbly. 

There was to be no goal for Thiam as his race was run on 68 minutes; Kieffer Moore continuing his comeback and taking to the field with just over 20 minutes to play. 

Soon afterwards, the excellent Mike Bähre danced into a shooting position on the edge of the area before seeing his bending effort brilliantly turned behind by Letheren who was refusing to concede a fourth goal.

A double change came with 10 minutes left on the clock at Home Park, with Woodrow and Bähre replaced by the fresh legs of Ryan Hedges and Callum Styles respectively and both subs were involved in the latter stages as the Reds looked to put the gloss finish to what was a wonderful Easter Monday display.

Hedges was thwarted by Letheren when he shot from the edge of the box, before Styles robbed a defender at the byline, cut the ball back for the advancing Moore and the big man snatched at his shot, sending it a yard wide of the gaping net.

Moore was to be presented with a second opportunity to bag a goal, slipped in by Styles but his shot from 12 yards flew over the crossbar. 

It was a terrific day's work for Stendel's side, and a Happy Easter weekend!
